  1. If Punjab govt. grants LL.M allowance to Punjab govt. servants Rs. 5,000 then why federal govt employees are being discriminated / dis allowed from the same allowance? Please justify ?

  2. Assalam-o-alikum!
    Respected Sir!
    I am working as Upper Division Clerk (BS-11), in Federal Government Department, having M.Sc. (HONS) Agriculture (18 Years of schooling) degree. I applied for M.Phil Allowance but came to know that Federal Govt. dose not allow the M.Phil allowance to anyone having degree title other tan M.Phil. After clear clarification of HEC the Finance Division dose not pay attention the cause of imbiguity that the Finance Division should allow the M.Phil Allowance to applicants possessing 18 Years of Schooling rather than title of their degrees that causing serious problem for common persons. As the HEC clarified that after the Year 2000, there are ample Degrees had been started in Science Discipline with different degree titles but equal Years of Schooling.
    The Finance Department of KPK also issued a notification following the directions of KPK HC, but the Honourable SC set aside the notification and dose not pay attension to the HEC clarification.
    Is there anybody working/ follow-on the matter as I am?
    Please Reply if you facing the same problem. I think we should do our best to challenge the malafide decision.

  3. My Question is about Para iv What is meant by notification of final result, is it from degree issuance date or from Degree completion date

  4. A.O.A. whether Federal Government Employees who have MS degree (18 years qualifications) are also entitled for Mphil allowance now. As previously Finance Division Government of Pakistan issued notification that equivalent degree holders are not allowed for Mphil allowance. Please any notification from Finance Division Government of Pakistan for Ms allowance may be up loaded or further advice in this regard so that Federal Government Employees may not be deprived, plz. Thanks a lot.

    GC University Lahore is still not giving the PhD Allowance to its employees. Very non professional attitude from administration.
